Win2K/Win98 OS Boot Menu: How Remove ?

I wanted to install Windows 2000 onto my computer but then changed my mind a few minutes into it.  It got to the point of resetting my computer and continuing in DOS; a blue screen running thru various things for Win2K.  Anyway, I canceled the operation expecting to ust go back to Windows 98 the way it used to be but there is this boot menu asking which operating system to boot: Windows 2000 Operating System OR Windows 98.  I have to choose Win98 to go into it.

How do I remove this OS boot menu so that it ust automatically logs into Windows 98, completely removing Win2K from my computer?

Thanks.

Type sys C: from a Windows 98 boot disk.  You may want to delete ntdetect.bom, boot.ini and ntldr from the root directory as well.

user the following dos command:

"fdisk /mbr"

It cleans your Master-Boot-Record (short MBR).. I hope you've got a good bootmanager or you can't boot Win2K.
